Each Sunday during worship, we read or hear stories and lessons from the most famous book in the world, the Bible. It is a book on which we base our faith as Christians but what is it really saying, and what does that mean for us now in 2021? What is the rest of the story?
These questions, and more, are explored each week during Education for Ministry (EfM) at St. Mary Anne’s.
The program encompasses the Old Testament and parts of the Bible that are unfamiliar; the New Testament; St. Paul’s letters (What is Paul trying to say in the Epistles?); Church History (How did we go from the 12 Apostles to the Episcopal Church?); and Ethics (So how does this affect my life?)
Each week we begin in prayer; discuss the suggested readings, reflect on how our tradition both biblical and historical is important for us today, eat wonderful snacks, and enjoy a special community of people.
This year EfM will be a hybrid program with Zoom connections for those who are in other parishes and simultaneous in-person meetings at St. Mary Anne’s Vestry House. EfM at St. Mary Anne’s begins on September 13, 2021 and meets on Monday evenings (6:30-8:30PM).
